    I have no idea. I do think there is some sort of plastic dye you can use

    Your hand oils will break down whatever paint you use and probably make it look terrible. Plus the paint on your hands, just seems like a bad idea regardless of the airbag.

    Steering wheel wraps/covers are an option.

    Wouldn't it be a good idea to pull airbag fuse?

    Lets see yours Eric. Hopefully you wont let some internet tough guys dissuade you from a masterpiece of your own.

    From your original post it looks like you've already tried. - Looks like Ass

    I was ready to put dash back in and parts, but been watching more and more videos on diy. Now think of dyeing carpet and painting interior frame. Ugh more disassembling. If imma do something, better do it right the first time.

    It's a great idea right up until the airbag does it's job.
